Prince Albert

Prince Albert is a delightful historic village at the foot of the Swartberg Pass, which has been declared a World Heritage site. It forms part of the Karoo which is a semi desert area taking up a large part of central South Africa. Although the region is known for periodic devastating drought, the town escapes this as it is blessed with perennial water from the Swartberg (Black Mountain) and the village still uses the age-old water furrow system along its streets to irrigate gardens an – Read More –

    Sunday 20 February is a day I shall remember for all the right reasons. It was a day of like-minded souls gathering together to share something they are all passionate about – food!

    Stylish!.... from the Food styling and food photography workshop

    African Relish attended the Food Bloggers Indaba held at Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek, Cape Town. This annual event is a great forum for foodies to gather and share their stories face to face, meeting the flesh and blood behind the virtual pseudonyms they have communicated with on the social media platforms. This is an extremely tight community and one that is madly passionate about all things culinary, an extraordinarily generous group of people who willingly share their insights, wisdom and discoveries and contribute a great deal to the foodie community’s knowledge base as a whole.
    A great selection of keynote speakers, Jeanne Horak-Druiff (aka Cooksister), Jane-Anne Hobbs (aka Juno) shared their views on blogging, the art of writing, electronic etiquette and how to create a personal brand around your blog. We were privileged to have Michael Olivier presenting a blind tasting of some great wines.  Abigail Donnelly food editor of TASTE and Philippa Cheifitz renowned food writer/stylist and award winning cookbook author shared their insight into the world of print, assuring the keyboard foodies that print is alive and well. Andy Fenner (aka JamieWho) gave his insight into creating a personal brand. Andy is coming to African Relish in May to cook up a storm in the Karoo. He will be working with some of our local food heroes and producers and will demonstrate just how lekker local can be. For more details, have a look at www.africanrelish/courses-and-tours and don’t miss out on this opportunity.

    From L-R Jeanne Horak-Druiff- keynote speaker, Colleen Grove - Intrepid Indaba organiser, Jamie Schler, author of food blog Life’s a Feast as well and contributor to the Food page of the Huffington Post.

    African Relish also took the opportunity to launch a special Food Bloggers Weekend Getaway scheduled for three separate dates in June, October 2011 and January 2012. We also donated a Food Bloggers Gourmet Getaway as a prize to one lucky Food Blogger at the Indaba and we look forward to welcoming Sue Green from Pietermaritzburg (Sous Chef) to African Relish for what promises to be a Food Bloggers Bonanza.
    A range of fascinating and very informative workshops were held in the afternoon with food styling, food photography and writing proving very popular.
    The sponsors of the Food Bloggers indaba were lipsmackingly generous with their goodie bag contributions and every delegate left laden with a sack full of surprises.
    We join everyone in thanking the sponsors for their generosity and support in making the Food Bloggers Indaba a possibility.
